The returning Taglietelle has the best piece of form with a second in a Newmarket handicap to his credit in September. However, he has to concede a stack of weight to the younger horses at this time of year and PEREIRA can take advantage. David Simcock's filly showed improved form for the step up to today's distance at Wolverhampton last time and is preferred to London Skolar, a modest sixth on his debut over 1m2f here with Could Be finishing a well-beaten last. Common Courtesy should do better over this longer trip and makes more appeal than Revert and Edna.
